You are bidding on a 1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport. This has been a daily driver since I bought it in 2005 it has a 351cc Cleveland motor 2 barrel stock from everything I know. I have never had the motor opened up. The motor and tranny are in good shape no leaks and does not smoke. Things I have done over the years replaced the carburetor, 4 new tires they now have about 20000 miles on them, replaced the ball joints and some of the bushing, recently replaced the back shocks, front shocks replaced about three years ago, we tinted the windows about 6 month ago, master cylinder was replaced 5 months age, starter replaced about a year ago, changed the radio to an FM CD player, added some 6X9 speakers, quarter window seals, front and rear emblems about 5 years ago and a bench seat cover.
Things that need attention she has some rust in the normal spots re-quarter panels, under the doors, trunk lid, under the vinyl top, a few spots on the hood, interior needs to be replaced, passenger front fender has a small dent, paint is starting to fade, power steering has a leak, gas gauge does not work along with the clock and tires are ok for now. If I can think of anything else I'll add it. The mileage posted is what the odometer reads I have NO IDEA of its accuracy.
I bought this car because it could be driven and worked on it wasn't someone else's jigsaw puzzle nor was it a trailer queen. She is affordable and can be enjoyed my son and I have done just that, she is a little better off than we found her.
I am selling this car in as is condition with warranty at all. All sales are final so PLEASE ask all the questions before you bid I will try to get you the info or picture if you need them asap. Bid to win if the price gets close to the reserve I may remove the reserve.
The car is in south Florida but was in TN for about five years.
Winning bidder needs to pay for the car in full within 5 days and picked up in 7 days. Shipping cost is the responsibility of the buyer.
I hope I covered it all if not just ask. Thank you for your time and happy bidding

We've almost become immune to the huge dollar amounts that collectible cars earn for charity at Barrett-Jackson. To wit, $300,000 for the first production 2015 Ford Mustang initially didn't seem like very much money. In reality, though, it's probably about 10 times the actual asking price for the car, and we're pleased to report that 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

According to Ford, the car's winning bidder will get to "choose a fastback with manual or automatic transmission, and any interior, exterior and stripe color combination offered by Ford on the all-new Mustang." Power will come from a slightly revised version of the well-known 5.0-liter V8 engine that will produce "more than 420hp and 396 pound-feet of torque."
We snapped live images of the 2015 Mustang prototype that Ford had on display here at Barrett-Jackson, and you can check them out above. The official auction description, along with a video of the auction as it happened live, is below.
The evolution of automotive marketing has undergone a number of strange phases. Few, though, match the strangeness of the 1930s to 1950s, when automotive marketers turned to cookbooks as a means of promoting their vehicles. Yes, cookbooks. We can't make this stuff up, folks.

This bizarre trend led to General Motors distributing cookbooks under the guise of its then-subsidiary Frigidaire. Ford, meanwhile, offered a compilation of recipes from Ford Credit Employees (shown above). The cookbook-craze wasn't limited to domestic manufacturers, though. As The Detroit News discovered, both Rolls-Royce and Volkswagen got in on the trend, although not until the 1970s.
The News has the full story on this strange bit of marketing. Head over and take a look.
Thanks to the smoke wand in the wind tunnel, you can actually see the difference in our video.
Should you drive with your pickup truck's tailgate up or down? It's an age-old controversy that's divided drivers for decades. Traditionalists will swear you should leave the tailgate down. Makes sense, right? It would seem to let the air flow more cleanly over the body and through the bed. But there's also a school of thought that argues trucks are designed to look and operate in a specific manner, and modern design techniques can help channel the airflow properly. So don't mess with all of that: Leave the tailgate up.
